Valeska Stratt

Spectacular settings and gowns, especially a striking silver number.
A fantasy story told in verse.
"Black Crepe and Diamonds"
She received "enthusiastic applause of the audience with a generosity that is all too rare among musical comedy stars".
Although Stratt's stepping was plain, it was made up for by her assistants, Mr. and Mrs. Higgins. As a whole, the piece was an interesting novelty.
